 “Clark Contractors partnered with the Challenge Program and Everett High School because we felt it was necessary to look into our county’s future and prepare students to be able to have a good start in the workforce.  The program provides and opportunity for students to learn good employee traits and start on the right foot in obtaining a position they are interested in and enthused about.”  – Clifton Clark, President

Clark Contractors, Inc. joins The Challenge Program at a Major Corporate Sponsor level, contributing $50,000 in 2019.  This major gift will give TCP access to local students at Everett High School.
